Episode Summary

EDIT
Wheels Within Wheels
AIRED:
Shortly after Richard carries Maggie across the threshold of their new home, he is perturbed by the news that Eric and Vickie have left for Europe and that someone has broken into his wall safe. Also, the key to his Swiss bank safe-deposit box has been copied in wax. In Geneva, Eric and Vickie put their plan into motion, getting a wax mold of the key that will admit them to the bank vault. Melissa will not warm up to her uncle Frank and Angela frankly doesn't know why he even bothers trying to win her over. Frank Agretti then tells Angela that he's not sure what his heirloom is, but he has to pass it on before he dies. Angela learns he has six months to two years to live. To help Emma figure out why Curtis Estabrook was murdered, Lance goes to Las Vegas to speak with George Wescott, a man who tells him about John Remick's connection to the murder. Maggie is shocked to hear him report that whatever Curtis knew about Remick resulted in his death. Also, Richard is involved in this somehow. It's also impossible to get in touch with Remick because he's been taken prisoner in Africa. Angela gets Carly a job at the spa. She pulls her off the switchboard to snoop through Frank Agretti's room. Frank catches Carly and throws her out. The grape queen finds him packing his jeep for a trip to the desert. He's been looking at an antique map and survey book in Melissa's cellar. Melissa insists on traveling with her uncle. Vickie and Eric break into Richard's safe deposit box, but they don't even have time to count their booty. Richard found out what they were up to. Vickie and Eric are arrested and held in custody by the Swiss police. Feeling just a twinge of paranoia, Richard tells Maggie that his son Michael is off limits to his grandmother. Maggie rebels and brings the boy to Falcon Crest. Having Garth living under the same roof as the two of them has Maggie boiling mad; Garth is listening in on her phone calls and telling Richard about her every move. The strain on the Channing marriage is driving Maggie to drink. When Richard is served papers for custody of Michael Channing on behalf of Angela, Maggie hits rock bottom. Richard comes home to find her stinking drunk. They get into an ugly fight over this latest problem with Angela. Maggie falls and hits her head on the floor.moreless
